  • The Zoo in Cali is a must. It is a beautiful and well kept Zoo. There are many different animals and also animals that you don't have in Netherlands in zoos. The entrance is not expensive.

  • It is a very nice place. With a Variety of very well cared for animals. The species look healthy. Currently there are new areas in adaptation. I was struck by the otters project. The spaces are very good. There are spaces to rest and eat during the tour, which you can do in an approximate space of about three hours, paying attention to the written description they make of each of the species, and even of botanical species, in such a way that they also learn from plants. Nice to go with the family and at an affordable price.
  • Showing in different natural scenarios the natural diversity of Colombia, South America and other regions of the world. Not cage looking but more as open environments from different regions. Shows also the culture, some traditional architecture and plants. Must see place
  • I loved it, the animals are well taken care of. Very organized and people from the zoo are very friendly. But visitors leave their trash around.
  • Very nice place to hang out and many Latin American special animals. Love it here! The door price is a bit pricey. We had a great time and it took us about 2.5hours here. They told me it's the best zoo in Latin America, so that's the reason why I came here. It's pretty educational and you can see that they put a lot of effort on maintaining this zoo.
  • We visited here on a Sunday because many things were closed and this was not. The downside is that it seemed like everyone from in Cali also went there. It was pretty crowded but not unbearable. Not as nice as some of the zoos in the States but had a large variety of local species. Bordered by the mountains and the river, it was very scenic. I would suggest going as early as possible to avoid the crowds.
